Aubagio and Pregnancy

Can My Male Partner Use Aubagio?

Aubagio passes through semen and, therefore, has the potential to cause problems if used by a male wishing to father a child. However, human and animal studies have not been done to determine if Aubagio use in men actually increases the risk for birth defects or other problems in a developing fetus.
 
The manufacturer of Aubagio recommends that men taking this drug should use a reliable form of birth control if their female partner is of childbearing potential. A man's female partner should also use an effective form of birth control. If a man wishes to father a child, he should stop taking Aubagio and talk to his healthcare provider about ways to rapidly remove Aubagio from the bloodstream. It can normally take up to two years for Aubagio to be completely removed from the body. 
 

Final Thoughts

Aubagio can be quite dangerous if used by a pregnant woman. Therefore, if you are pregnant or thinking about becoming pregnant, let your healthcare provider know immediately. If you are currently taking this medicine, you must use a reliable method of birth control. Talk to your healthcare provider if you wish to become pregnant. You should not take Aubagio if you are or may become pregnant.
